Reminds me of the movie: Live In Public.

What amazed me the most was the complete lack of regard for other members who were invited to share this opportunity by some of the participants. Not doing dishes or keeping the house somewhat tidy, waking others with loud music when they were supposed to get sleep in order to do well in their careers. Complete insulation from the real world. I think it was abusive for the producers to insist that there be cameras in the bedrooms, bathrooms, etc. These are young people in their formative years and were basically emotionally blackmailed in order to get ratings for a show. I watched all episodes and the ending of the show was rather abrupt. There should have been more focus upon the interviews for roles, etc., and less focus upon parties, in-fighting, peeing in shampoo bottles, etc. Too much of an invasion of these people's lives ... and for what? Did they learn how to be sensitive to other people, act with class as role models. There should have been supervision by the producer from day one ... things got way out of hand early on.

Young people willing to sell themselves out for fame and fortune

I have been watching this show and checking in on the house for a couple of weeks. It is disappointing that these kids are willing to sell their souls for fame and fortune. The language is certainly inappropriate for any age and there is nudity. Kara and Justin are the only ones in the house who aren't willing to sell out.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
